Fields Of The Nephilim "Mourning Sun"
You should take plenty of time to listen to Fields Of The Nephilim’s music. Their albums are anything but an accidental stringing together of arbitrary songs they are fascinating works of art, all of them, revealing their all-encompassing complexity in their overall context. Their brand-new recording, Mourning Sun, is another one of those haunting sonic journeys which lead their listeners into that uncharted world of mysteries and secrets that band mastermind Carl McCoy has been famous for in the past twenty years. Mourning Sun links spherical sonic images with driving rhythms, telling stories of a still uncharted future. “The lyrics of Mourning Sun are the words of today that give me a glimpse of tomorrow,” explains McCoy, adding: “The whole thing is about looking forward as opposed to dwelling in the past.”

To be able to fully concentrate on his ambitious work, McCoy retreated into total isolation, writing the album in a relatively short time. Based on the typical Nephilim sound, he worked on an evolution of his tried-and-tested stylistic devices and arrived at new artistic horizons. “Mourning Sun is a progression of the previous Nephilim albums, from Dawnrazor through Elizium to Zoon,” he points out, “no comparison, only progression.” He expresses himself in a total of seven epic numbers that live off their breathtaking density and haunting atmospheres. Tracks such as ‘Shroud (Exordium),’ ‘Requiem XIII-33 (Le Veilleur Silencieux),’ or the title track ‘Mourning Sun’ (with over 10 minutes playing time) all stand in their own right, while at the same time complementing each other, blending into a complex whole. McCoy: “Every track has to be listened to in the context of the album.”(08.Nov.2005)
